  • Date Spot Review: Avra Beverly Hills Estiatorio

    Avra Beverly Hills Estiatorio is the third restaurant in the Avra family (the other two are located in NYC) and is an absolutely beautiful restaurant. It is an open air concept, so fitting to our beautiful mediterranean climate and their delicious mediterranean food. The restaurant is large, has an impressive bar, a lovely showcase of […]

  • Alameda Supper Club: Date Spot Review

    Alameda Supper Club is the newest addition to the Tartine restaurant group, that started in San Francisco. It is downtown, and connected to Tartine Bianca: a lovely, large restaurant that includes a full bar and market. Alameda Supper club has a slightly more upscale feel to it’s sister, Tartine Bianca, and is serving delicious Italian […]

  • Date Spot Review: Blackship

    Blackship is taking a spin on fusion that I have not had before: Italian and Japanese. They have some hits and some misses; but the overall vibe, culinary risk taking, and pretty restaurant decor make it for a good date spot choice. Blackship is located in West Hollywood on Santa Monica Blvd. The cocktail menu […]

  • Date Spot Review: Pizzicotto

    Pizzicotto is a lovely neighborhood restaurant with friendly staff, consistently good food, and a quaint atmosphere that would make for a lovely date spot.  You know the place has a lot of regulars because when patrons enter, many are greeted with personal hellos from the very friendly hostess and waiters. It gives the restaurant a […]

  • Date Spot Review: Tesse

    Tesse is one of my favorite restaurants in Los Angeles right now. It has a fun, trendy, but not snobby atmosphere, it has wonderful creative food, and their wine selection and service make for an interesting dining experience with fun vino gab. When you come into Tesse you feel the lively fun energy of the […]

  • Date Spot Review: Faith and Flower

    Faith and Flower has very interesting and pretty decor, and scrumptious food.  It’s downtown location can cause some logistical issue with traffic and parking (although at this point, where in LA is easy?), but it is worth it.  Dining at Faith and Flower would be an excellent date idea. The restaurant itself is large.  It […]

  • Date Spot Review: Water Grill Santa Monica

    Water Grill in Santa Monica is located at an ideal spot for enjoying an evening by the ocean.  While a lot of restaurants at the beach can be overly touristy, Water Grill maintains a good level of culinary integrity, and does not simply rest on its location laurels.  It merits a date night. Water Grill […]

  • Date Spot Review: Nook Bistro

    Nook’s name is very apropos, as it literally is in a nook on a very undistinguished strip mall on a very blasé section of Santa Monica Blvd.  Despite the unsuspecting location, Nook serves up very creative and delicious food in a relaxed and smart atmosphere. Coming into Nook is a complete departure from the outside […]

  • Date Spot Review: Osteria Mozza

    Despite seeming to be a go to date spot of Angelenos, Osteria Mozza isn’t one of Gentlemen Only’s favorite spots.  The staff is knowledgable and apt, but the atmosphere lacks intimacy and the food isn’t up to the standard we would hope for at its price point. Osteria Mozza is a pretty large restaurant – It […]

  • Date Spot Review: Angelini Osteria

    When choosing a date spot in LA, you can go for the new and trendy, which LA seems to have a rotating door of, or you can go to a place that you know is going to be good from a tried and true track record. Angelina Osteria falls into the latter category, having been […]
